'Panek Vineyard' Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 –
Pulido-Walker Panek Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
As the 2013 Napa Valley vintage continues to rack up accolades, Pulido-Walker winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown is really pleased with the 2014 vintage. The third in a trifecta of near-ideal Napa Valley growing seasons despite prolonged drought conditions, 2014 is showing greater varietal and site expression across the valley. These wines are differentiating themselves early, which promises to give wine lovers a reason to taste widely and explore wines of distinct character. The 2014 Pulido-Walker Cabernet Sauvignon from Panek Vineyard is a return to the generous fruit profile he expected from this site. "In 2014, we return to the familiar red-black fruit profile, greater acidity, and caramelized sugar qualities that distinguish Cabernet Sauvignon from this site. The ten-year mark seems to be a magical one for Cabernet Sauvignon plantings in Napa Valley, and Panek Vineyard has hit its tenth anniversary with a 2014 wine that shows a walnut skin quality that makes a savory counterpoint to the familiar maple syrup character." 200 cases were produced.
